Mainstream education as a disabled student [TG3/Education]


2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Event Type

Chloe Tear started a blog, Life as a Cerebral Palsy Student, when she was 15 years old and this formed the basis of her desire to raise awareness. Her blog later changed its name to ‘Chloe Tear’ when she left education.

She’s a tireless campaigner, disability activist and public speaker who appears on radio and television as well pursuing a freelance writing career. Her work has supported the BBC, Scope and RNIB while regularly supporting national campaigns in the field. Chloe is working to raise awareness of living with cerebral palsy and sight loss, with her focus on a need to change public attitudes towards disability.

In 2018, she was given a Prime Minister’s Points of Light award for raising disability awareness and has twice featured in the Shaw Trust Power 100 List which comprised of the most influential disabled people in Britain. In 2020, she received a British Education Award for her contribution to inclusive education.

Chloe’s freelance career has grown over the last few years. Currently, she also works for Scope as a content designer. In this role she writes information and advice that supports disabled people and their families to live the life they choose.

In this presentation, Chloe will be focusing on her journey as well as how being visually impaired affected how she accessed library services at university.
